I would definitely recommend Frankee Love, she was wonderful to work with! Very professional and kind and really went out of her way to help us! Our pictures are wonderful! She was excellent! You can look at our pictures on her beach weddings Virginia website under portfolios under Bill and Maryann

Frankee did a beautiful job with our ceremony on the beach - couldn't have asked for it to have been done better! Although there was not much contact in the months leading up to the wedding (which made me nervous being an out-of-town bride), in the last few weeks leading up to the wedding the contact increased and my nerves were calmed. She was very pleasant and I believe that Frankee has done this so much that she doesn't worry too much about the details and, as I mentioned, her experience shined during the ceremony which turned out perfectly. Frankee also does the photography before and after the wedding and again I must say that our pictures were more beautiful than I could have imagined! Although her services did not include photos during the wedding or for long into the reception time (which caused a little heartache - you may have to depend on a good family photographer or hire a second photographer to get those important shots with some of her packages), it all worked out in the end and the posed photographs were like something out of a magazine!

My husband and I wanted a simple wedding package for two and we thought we were getting a deal through Frankee Love; we were sadly mistaken. For the price the package deal was great and sounded perfect. Unfortunately, we didn't really get what we paid for.
1. The bride's dressing room was under construction (actually looked like most of the bldg. was inside). She did give a $50.00 refund for that.

2. The $100.00 dinner gift certificate we received was for a family restaurant; not quite the romantic setting for newly weds to dine. Her response was just to order something small, get the rest of the money and eat elsewhere (we did). I thought it was interesting that everyone in Lovingston advised we didn't dine there; you'd think someone who sets up weddings would know this.

3. On the day of my wedding, I didn't get the cascading flowers I asked for; instead I got a typical bouquet and the flowers didn't look very fresh.

4. The wedding cake looked like something anyone could make; in fact it didn't come from a bakery, but a local woman's kitchen. Nothing like Betty Crocker. In addition, we didn't even get a box for it; we had to buy a cooler for the 3 hr. drive home.

5. Just recently as I was speaking with some co-workers it dawned on me that they totally skipped the lighting of the Unity Candle. Obviiously it was too late to do anything about it at this point however, I wanted to inform Ms. Love so this wouldn't happen again. Her reply to me was if I had "asked the officiant to do it, she would have". Excuse me, but I believe I'm paying this vendor to take care of the details of my wedding and she did not. She offered to have us come to her Virginia Beach location and she'd take photos of us lighting the candle. We chose not to accept since the meaning of it isn't the same; it should've taken place at the wedding itself.

Ms. Love insulted me by stating we were the "FIRST" to ever complain about her service, I beg to differ; see the comment above. I definitely don't recommend Frankee Love wedding services. You'd be better off doing a search and please read the reviews before chosing a pkg.!!!!!! If you're interested, please see my photos. You can see what they advertise versus what we actually paid for; judge for yourself.

I was very excited after reviewing many of her photographs, but we were very disappointed in Ms. Love's services. She kept the location a secret which we were to later find out she would send us to a very public area of the Bay where she was unwilling to walk to an area where no bathers would be visible in our pictures. She came with no assistants for her photography equipment, so we had to hold up her screens for her! There were only two good photographs out of probably 50 shots she took which was very disappointing for me considering we paid her over $600 for just pictures. What was really shocking is to find that she did NOT post our pictures on her website...so dont think that they all come out good! She choses. My recommendation, spend $50-100 on a different officiant/JOP and arrange for a professional photographer with an assistant if your planning a beach wedding being careful to choose a specific location and time that you can insure your wedding doesnt become a public affair. Also, her vows were corny.
